Graduate assistantships are available in the Biomechanics Laboratory of the
Department of Exercise and Sport Science at East Carolina University.
Students will pursue a Master's degree in exercise science / biomechanics
for two years in projects funded in part by the National Institutes of
Health. The NIH work addresses the mechanisms of gait adaptations in aging
using 3D motion analysis and electromyography. The exercise neuroscience
studies focus on the motor cortical mechanisms of acute and chronic
adaptations to exercise using transcranial magnetic brain stimulation in
humans. Research is carried out in collaboration with the Human Performance
Laboratory and the Department of Physical Therapy. Apply at
